SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With 25,800+ artists, boasting 118,160+ tracks, the CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
ROADTRIP! VIAindie is going on the road (again) but just for a weekend this time, to the Sasquatch Festival in Washington. There will be many Canadians performing over the weekend and the list includes Vancouverites Black Mountain. To celebrate this we asked the band to put together a playlist for us and they delivered one that rivals The Pack A.D.’s from two weeks back! Get ready to rock on a Monday morning, and if you’re at Sasquatch, catch the band on Monday at 3pm at the Bigfoot stage…
